Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve BioBlitz
June 27 | 10:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT
NOTE: Please check back for updates regarding this event. As Oregon reopens, we will most likely be adapting some of our events.
A BioBlitz is an intensive survey of a defined area on a single day with the goal of identifying all the species to be found in that area at one time – it is a snapshot of biodiversity. Come explore Oregon’s coastal waters while helping local scientists survey the species of the region!
We plan to have a brief introduction on Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve and answer any iNaturalist questions at the beginning of the event.
